Last night TLC held their annual "Give A Little" Awards which honors people and organizations that work toward bullying prevention. One of the organizations recognized was Mallory's Army, which was founded after 12-year-old Rockaway Township student Mallory Grossman committed suicide.
Mallory's older sister Carlee accepted the award on behalf of the organization and talked about their goal.
"When Mallory died, we had two options. We could lay on the couch and cry, or we could do something to make a difference, and we chose to make a difference. We created Mallory's Army to spread the message that you are not alone, there are other kids like you, and it doesn't have to go as far as suicide for there to be change."
